A variety of shore-to-ship missiles, ship-to-ship missiles, as well as the latest ship-borne air defense weapons were shown as part of the naval battle group formations that marched through Beijing's Tian'anmen Square in a military parade marking the 70th founding anniversary of the People's Republic of China on Tuesday.

The YJ-12B shore-to-ship missiles, which made their debut in China's military parade, can hit large and-medium-sized ships and play an important role in China's coastal defense system.

Meanwhile, featured air defense, HHQ-9B, HQ-16, HQ-10 missiles and the phalanx close-in weapon systems support naval and land battle groups.
